The plenary is the highest decision-making body of the NPRA for members with voting privileges and will take place on Saturday, March 16th at 2:25pm. The Convention has three main responsibilities and powers:
1. Provide a national forum for organizations, elected officials, and community stakeholders to gather in service of the Puerto Rican community.
